Also, as far as I know, there's no convenient way to rebuild a
single module for another architecture. I use the following script
called 'arch' to set the appropriate environment variables, so if
I've already run 'make universe' and I want to rebuild libc for
sparc64, I say:

   cd /usr/src/lib/libc && arch sparc64 make

It would be nice if there were a better mechanism for this that's
integrated into the build system.
